PS Vita gets Skype

Tired of pwning your foes in the digital arena? Now you can have a break and chat with your mum instead

Skype has announced that its voice and video chat service is available to download as a PS Vita app from the PlayStation store.

The Skype app will run in the background and automatically pause your current PS Vita game when receiving a call, ensuring you never miss a chance to interact with a real-life human being during an epic boss battle.

If you haven’t got a Vita but are tempted by its quad-core graphical prowess, head on over to our Sony PlayStation Vita review to see what the mini gaming powerhouse has to offer, or head on over here for more information on the new Skype app.
